This book was chosen by my book club and i must admit when i first read the blurb i wasn't to impressed i didn't think i was going to enjoy it. I did however really enjoy it. I found it really grabbed my interest and kept me wanting to read more and more. I found myself really invested in the characters and what was going on in each of their lives. I gave this book a 5* rating on goodreads. I would very much recommend this book for anyone looking for a great historical, murder mystery novel.
